Vegetable Slicers

So we purchased a new food slicer yesterday for $20.  Burt was using it to slice up some cucumbers when he accidentally sliced his pinky finger on the blade.  He couldn't stop the bleeding on his own and with his diabetes now he didn't want to take any chance with an infection.  He went by himself and I started to finish up what he was doing by slicing the onions.  Do you see where this is going?

About 30 minutes after Burt left I was on my way to the ER after slicing off the tip of my middle finger.  What are the chances?!?  Soooo, 2 ER visits, 2 tetanus shots, some silver nitrate to stop the bleeding on my finger and 2 bandaged fingers later, it turned into a very expensive vegetable slicer!!

Everyone got a good laugh out of it in church this morning, but it made helping at the corn roast a little difficult.

Live and learn! :)
